Re: The Five Olive Trees
Thank you for such a nice and moving story. God listens to every sigh of our heart, every wish of our soul.
When I was a boy, I had one or two friends who I used to play with. I used to go to their house and play. At some point, one by one my friends did not want to play anymore. Like everything else in life, we were all changing, and the things we had in common decreased in number as we got older. But I still wanted a friend to play with! And so I found myself saying "When will I find a true friend?". God heard my cry and sent me Sri Chinmoy, a real, eternal friend, a friend of my soul, who is always willing to play with me. His inner Light illumines my life's darkness. His inner Bliss inundates my life's ocean. His inner Peace widens my life's horizons.
My Master knew me imperfect,
His heart loved me.
My Master knew me unworthy,
His soul blessed me.
My Master knew me ignorant,
His life embraced me.
